SlabStox is back from the Dallas Card Show, and there was a ton of wheelin’ and dealin’ all over the convention. With prices down a little bit, we were still able to buy, sell, and trade quite a few cards. All it took was a little creativity and compromise. We kick off this week’s episode of the Loupe Market Report by outlining a solid strategy for moving cards when everyone can’t agree on a price.
This week’s highlighted players are all about spikes. Ja Morant’s huge performance in the play-in tournament has led to his rookie cards recovering after an abysmal drop this year. Seattle Mariners prospect Noelvi Marte is getting some great traction on his 1st Bowman Chrome auto ever since he started playing in May. Carson Wentz’s rookie cards are on the upswing as collectors have a bit more faith in his situation in Indy over the mess in Philly. And, Christian Pulisic’s rare multi-color National team Select rookie card is sitting in the middle and could spike with a solid showing in the Champions League Final and/or the CONCACAF tournament this summer.
Let us know in the comments whose cards you’re keeping an eye on. Also, make sure to catch the SlabStox liveshow tomorrow, Thursday May 27 at 6pm Eastern, exclusively on the Loupe app. Lastly, if you’ve missed any Loupe Marketplace Reports and watch to catch up, here are the first three episodes:

This time of year is no different than any other in years past, except this year the USA has lifted most pandemic travel restrictions and everyone wants to just roam wherever..however..travel dollars are needed for expensive fancy food in places you didn’t realize existed or budgeted for…excess splurge coin has no steering wheel for the next 6 to 8 weeks…then its game on again..
Why are the brakes hot in the sports card market?..Duuuuuhhh..It’s that time of year & it’s no different than any other in years past, except this year the USA has lifted most pandemic travel restrictions and everyone wants to just roam wherever..however..travel dollars are needed for expensive fancy food in places you didn’t realize existed or budgeted for & my excess splurge coin has no steering wheel for the next 6 to 8 weeks…then its game on in the fall…
